Farewell Letter

October 13th, 2022

Hi there,

I write this letter with a very, very heavy heart. Due to severe neck issues I am unable to continue practicing Dentistry.

This is certainly not what I had anticipated. It has come up quite rapidly and has been a difficult reality to accept. I love what I have been doing for the past 36 years and have so enjoyed working with my irreplaceable employees (Selina and Anna right now) and my wonderful patients (all of you). I have gotten to know many of you quite well and feel that you all are my Dental Family. It’s sad to think that I have already seen many of you for the last time and cannot tell you goodbye in person or let you know how very much I have appreciated you and enjoyed this ride.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to find another Dentist that I truly trust, with the ability to take on so many patients. I will take care of any of your urgent needs for the next 30 days. I encourage you to find a new Dentist as soon as possible to keep up your excellent Dental Care to set you up for Oral Health and Success…and before you could have a possible emergent need. Our Physical Address at 920 Northgate Drive will be officially closed as of November 9th and we will not have a presence in the office after November 30th (or sooner). When you find another Dentist please have them contact us for your x-rays or any other necessary treatment records or Pro-actively we can e-mail them to you so you have them on hand when you need them. Our e-mail address to request the x-rays is TamraAdamsDDS@gmail.com.

I have already increased my schedule of teaching at UCSF and will continue there as long as my body permits. Anna will continue to work but increase her time in the other office she practices in and will be increasing her time as a BodyRok instructor. Selina has started a business creating some beautiful jewelry (@TB.Ranch Silver (Thunder Buddy)). Although we have scheduled your next cleaning appointments we will be unable to accommodate any appointments after 11/8/2022.

Thanks for helping me to have a happy, thriving Dental Home that I have enjoyed so much!

Be Well


Dr. Adams
